Abstract

In this paper we shed lights on the economic growth of Mezzogiorno of Italy during the last twenty years. The empirical analyses refer to various aspects of the Mezzogiorno economy: income per capita, labor productivity, public and private accumulation and competitiveness. The main contribution of this paper is to provide a key to explain the actual weackness of Mezzogiorno. More precisely, we argue that the effectiveness of regional policies has been affected by national legal rules that have had different effects across regions. In addition, the effectiveness of regional policies has been diminished by attributing importance to regional governments as control centres of public intervention.
